The Sun Remembers May 12-18
May 15, 2004: In sultry heat and on a bone-dry track, Smarty Jones wins the Preakness by a record 111/2 lengths before an announced record crowd of 112,668 at Pimlico Race Course. The victory gives Smarty Jones two legs up in his quest to win the Triple Crown. He'll fail.
